Tune of the Day: Air by J.S. Bach

from French Suite No. 2, transcribed for two flutes

Today's piece is the central air from Johann Sebastian Bach's second French Suite for harpsichord, composed around 1722. Originally in C minor, this movement has been transposed to F minor to better fit the range of the flute.

Many thanks to Joyce Kai for contributing this arrangement!
